My colleague Thierry Carrez just posted a blog this weekend discussing the new autoregistration features of the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud that are coming up in Ubuntu 10.04LTS Server Edition.
Following up on the action I accepted during last week's server meeting, I searched the web a bit for PHP libraries for EC2 (or AWS in general).
As far as I can tell, a few exist, but only a few of those seem to be maintained regularly:
As I might be missing some, if you have been using those or other PHP libraries to control EC2, could you please speak up and let us know what library you used and how you liked it?
Last month, the German magazine T3N published an article that I wrote in English and which my colleague Torsten translated to German. Here is the original text I wrote before translation.
Working with a cloud infrastructure is not yet a common practice in the development community, and it is even less so for a local, on premises, private cloud infrastructure. Using a cloud infrastructure service requires to understand a few new paradigms. Having this infrastructure ready to service your developer's needs is not yet understood, but has much goodness to offer.

Je suis invité aujourd'hui à l'Ubuntu Party de Toulouse ou je viens de présenter deux conférences. Comme à Paris la semaine dernière, le public est très nombreux à avoir répondu à l'appel de Toulibre et Ubuntu-fr, cela fait vraiment plaisir.

This is the second edition of this initiative which was first introduced in 2008. It has now been extended to include more cloud related questions.
Thanks a lot to everyone that came to Skills Matter tonight for my presentation. I have really appreciated the quality of your questions and hope that my answers were satisfying.
Some people may say that I am a statistics junky... Well that's certainly true! But what do you want, being a product manager for a product that does not require ANY form of user registration, you have a tendancy to cling to any piece of data you may find that shows that you are not working in vain. Indeed, and to the opposite of most, if not all, of our competitors, we have absolutely no way to determine what is our install base.

Well, october was not too bad in that sense:
I am really sorry, I've been unfaithful. I have been seing another blog lately. Please don't be mad...
